    An update. I walked her to far end of property with another horse/rider along side. I used a lunge whip to just touch her when she stopped and refused to move forward. I got on her and we looped back toward barn (it was getting dark) she was good until I asked her to turn left (instead of straight for barn) she spun around, reared and panicked. I let her go back the way she wanted to go. However by then she was upset and I just had to keep calming her and stop her from rearing. She did in a few mins calm down and we went the way she wanted and she went back to barn w/o incident. About to go see her and maybe just walk around the property.

    Thanks again!

    Okay update again, in case any of you wonderful posters who have helped are interested:

    Tried her in arena yesterday after a very good no incident session in the roundpen. Now mind you the arena is a mess as we are replacing the fencing. (there are piles of wood, fence material, etc) I hand walked her quite a bit and then got on. She acted up almost immediately, running to the far end where there are trees she knew would knock me in the head. Tried rearing and then stopping all together.

    I finally got her to walk around and then finished on a sorta good note.

    Today I just walked her all over the arena then lunged her. Every time she was good I stopped for a while and let her eat grass. She actually got bored of the grass and wanted to go back to work!

    I then let her graze when we were done and have some treats and she was very calm. Tmrw will try to get on her again and see where we are.
